Swarovski heiress gets wed in 46kg of glittering crystals

We’re suckers for a good old nosy at someone else’s wedding dress – especially when it costs more than a three-bed house, has a six-metre train and weighs 46kg courtesy of the 500,000 crystals sewn into it.

Of course, such a sparkly show is to be expected when it’s worn by a member of the Swarovski family.

The gown was reportedly worth £700,000

Clad in a gown the very epitome of ‘princess bride’, Victoria Swarovski, 23, married Werner Mürz in Italy, probably inducing several cases of serious crystal envy in Swarovski fans.

The dress was custom-made by Michael Cinco – a Dubai-based designer who has dressed the likes of Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez – and featured paillette detail, laser-cut flowers and an intricate illusion bodice.

And the Swarovski crystals, which reportedly pegged the entire weight of the dress at 46kg. We’d just like to point out that 46kg is over seven stone. Seven. Stone.

Then there was that huge train, of course.

Far from the UK average cost of a wedding dress (£832 we’re reliably informed), the huge gown is widely reported to have cost in the region of £700,000 and appears to be a customised version of a design in his Spring-Summer 2016 collection – more than a match for the intimidating space of the Cathedral of San Giusto (also known as Trieste Cathedral).

She finished her bridal look with Swarovski-encrusted Jimmy Choos.

After the ceremony, the happy couple and their 250 guests traipsed to Falisia, a luxury resort and spa, for the wedding breakfast and reception, where a five-tier cake, floral sculptures and personalised glass placemats awaited them.

But you don’t care about that, do you? You care about the two other dresses the bride managed to squeeze into their day.

Swarovski, a singer, donned a fitted, strapless gown to perform for her guests – white and crystal-studded, natch – while later in the evening she chose another jewel-laden gown, this time a red number with a high-low hem, also designed by Cinco.

The designer shared a clip of her dancing in the dress on Instagram ahead of the wedding.

The wedding was said to be a three-day event, with a welcome dinner the previous night and a brunch the following day.

Pore over more pictures below, and rest assured that if this is your dream look, we’re pretty sure the same thing can be achieved with a pack of sequins and a glue gun. Right? Remember to let us know if you try that.

I said YES to the love of my life! ❤️❤️❤️
